Share our readers' experiences remembering loved ones, grinding grains and making homemade bread, growing hops, and more.

From left, Issac and Ethan, grandsons of Cindy and Glenn Wika, pose with the gourds Cindy grew, which she determined to be the result of an accidental cross-pollination between Atlantic Giant and Cinderella pumpkins, which she calls “Giarellas.” The largest of the Giarellas came in at 92 pounds, perfect for decorating in front of the house. Cinderellas, though, remain her favorites.
